Basic Parallel

Referred to by many as "Intermediate Parallel" this is a good goal for anyone wishing to cruise a variety of slopes from easy green runs to steeper blue runs... and even groomed black runs (if such a thing exists;).

Demonstration Objectives:

  • Keep skis parallel through entire turn.
  • Maintain a round turn shape through early grip.
  • Maintain consistent speed (adjusting to the slopes pitch).
  • Maintain rhythm and linking turns from one arc to the next.
  • Maintain a medium size corridor.

Sweet demo! Wish I’d found this one back in Feb/March.

Couple of questions:
1. What’s the pitch like? It looks relatively mild but then everything looks mild on camera.
2. This is posted on Vimeo? Do you have a vimeo channel with other vids? (Looked under ‘Section 8’ and ‘Science Friction’ and ‘Skier Lab’ but found nothing.

Can you post a similar video, with a list of skiing objectives, for “advanced parallel”? Perhaps also for (advanced) short-radius turns?
